Both of these thermostats are very good and do what they do well, although in slightly different ways. Both score 4. The Nest is the top selling programmable thermostat on Amazon, but it has been available for longer than the Honeywell.
Price — very similar. The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart is slightly less expensive at the moment, but prices do vary from time to time. Compatibility — both thermostats are compatible with the vast majority of North American heating and cooling systems.
Setting up the Wi-Fi Connection — the Honeywell takes a little longer to set up and is slightly more involved, but they are both quite straightforward and the manufacturers lead you through in a step by step method. Programming — while the Nest does not need the on and off times setting up it learns your routine and programs itself , with the Honeywell there is a preset program that only take a few moments to adjust to suit your requirements. Energy Saving — the Nest has the potential to save more energy and energy costs , but the question as to which actually does save more is dependent on several factors, such as location.
Warranty — both offer a similar 12 month warranty. Of the 2 thermostats that we have decided to compare, neither stands out as a clear winner. They have many similar features with some differences, and it is probably these differences that will sway your choice.
Although both of these devices share the same list price, they are often available with discounts which vary, so you would need to check the actual prices at the time of purchase.

In common with most thermostats, they are not suitable for use with v or v heating systems, typically found in baseboard heaters. Setting Up the Wi-Fi Connection The Wi-Fi connection is used to allow you to remotely control and adjust or override the settings to your thermostat. It is also used to collect weather data about your locality.
As the thermostats send out alerts when temperature setting are exceeded or some routine maintenance is needed, this also uses the Wi-Fi connection Nest Once the Nest has been installed, it then needs to be connected to your home Wi-Fi network using the network password.
You then need to download either the Apple or Android app. Create an account, if you do not already have one, and register the thermostat to that account. Once the thermostat is registered, the thermostat can then be controlled remotely. Honeywell The set-up for the Honeywell device is a little more involved. Firstly you need to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network, using the network password.
Once this is completed, you then need to register the thermostat at mytotalconnectcomfort. You are then sent an email to activate you device and allow remote access. An Apple or Android app can be downloaded to allow access while on the go.
Programming Here is another area where the devices take a different approach. The Honeywell Smart thermostat takes the conventional route, with set on and off times.
These, of course, can be easily adjusted, either at the thermostat or remotely over the Wi-Fi. As your routine changes, the program changes along with it. It does this by having a motion sensor in it, this means that to be most effective the thermostat needs to be located in the most heavily used room.
Like the Honeywell, all settings can be overridden remotely or at the device itself. Energy Saving Both devices are Energy Saver approved. Depending on the location of where you live, some energy providers provide discounts off energy bill by having such a thermostat installed.
In addition, both devices have features that are designed to reduce the cost and amount of energy the house consumes. Incorrectly programmed thermostats can actually end up using more energy.
They accuracy of the temperature sensors ensures that the temperature you set is the one that you get not several degrees hotter or cooler than you actually want. Honeywell The Honeywell comes with a recommended energy efficient program installed. You can easily adjust this to suit your particular circumstances. The Smart Response system learns your heating and cooling system and how long it will take to reach a set temperature. This means that the heating or cooling is switched on just in time to make sure that the room is at the right temperature when you need it and not before.
Click to see set up Honeywell. When you are away, for example on vacation, you can input the dates and the minimum and maximum temperatures that you want your home to be maintained at over this time. The settings will revert to normal once the set period is over. Nest The Nest has some very well thought out energy saving features. As it learns your system it starts to make recommendations about your temperature settings.
As you make adjustments, when it reaches a balance between the temperature and energy economy a green leaf will appear on the screen. There is a motion sensor fitted into the Nest, if this detects no movement for 2 hours it will switch the system off. Additionally if it detects movement when the system is in standby, it will switch the system on. This does mean that it is important where the Nest is sited. If, for example, it is sited in a hallway that may only be used when entering or exiting the home, the device will detect no movement and switch to standby.
The Nest also gives you energy usage reports. They not only tell you how much energy you have used but how efficiently you have used that energy, highlighting the best usage with the green leaf. On the apps, this report shows for the 10 previous days, but you can sign up for a monthly energy report, useful for building up a history of your energy use.
Note, this wiring configuration prevents you from turning the system fan on independently.
